When French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard famously stated that "all you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun," he overlooked another key element: an actor who knows his way around both. Jean-Paul Belmondo's breakthrough role in Godard's Breathless proved he was the right man for the job and propelled him to New Wave stardom. Despite countless cigarettes and a battered face reminiscent of Joe Frazier after the Thrilla in Manila, Belmondo's effortless style rightfully earned him a place on GQ's list of the 50 Most Stylish Men of the Past 50 Years. We recommend the newly re-released Pierrot Le Fou, 110 minutes of girls, guns, and precise filmic and sartorial style.
